This weight is one of the lightest among our recommended bags.

Getting Clubs In and Out of the Bag

The Sun Mountain Three 5 Bag has a four-way, slightly flared, round opening with three full length dividers and a diameter of 9”.

The opening of the bag is slightly smaller than we would prefer but the slight flare does ease club entry into the bag. The top design easily accommodates putters with over-sized grips.

The bag an updated shoulder strap system with has two shoulder straps that join together in a center back pad. The straps have three layers of construction to promote comfort.   The Three 5 also has a cushioned hip pad. The bag has top rim, spine and bottom handles for easy lifting options.

  1. I am looking to join a league this year and I am looking to buy a new bag. Based on your review on the Sun Mountain Three 5 it looks like this bag holds up to the other big name companies products. I had previously not heard of this brand but I am now looking to give it a shot! Thanks!

    1. John, thanks for your comment. I can understand why you might not have heard of Sun Mountain. But, they are actually one of the big names in bags. The are just not quite as visible because they don’t make clubs or balls.

      In terms of the bag you are looking at, you can’t go wrong with the Sun Mountain Three 5. It’s light and easy to carry. And it comes in 12 colors so its super easy to find a look that fits your style.
